CIAL DENTURES, whereby the strength,
reliability and facility of repair, pertain?

to moulded motalic or vulcanizablo base.
Strang Plate Toeth as firmly attached to
the base as if soldered to swaged
plate, are, by this process, substituted for
those specially designed for moulded base.
By their use tho operator is left free to ex?
ercise his own judgment in their arrange?
ment, and f?ndu himaelt no longer confined
to the sameness of the present style of
blocks, or single tcoth weakened by carv?
ing for monlded work.
No now appliances are required in this
process. It is easily acquired by any one
familiar with either moulded or swaged
work. It gives to tho operator confidence
in the reliability of his cases, exompting
him from tho disappointment and per?
plexity often attendant on his most faith?
ful efforts. It renders partial cases as reli?
able as full sets, and, consequently, will
tend to ameliorate the present deplorable
practice of extracting every iooth, nouna

MUNCHAUSEN ATJABEA.-If we re?

once traveled in Russia, where his
horn was frozen full of musical notes,
which thawed out one by one io full
Bound as the horn hung by the fire at

a sudden thaw, found next morning
himself on the ground and his horse
swinging at the top of a church spire
-so deep had been the snow. The
Baron is again abroad. He has been
to Aliaska, and hero is his report
about certain ranges of mountains:
"They are mighty in size and cause
mnch. cold. Wonderful things are
told of them. It is said that in some
places there are deep pools aud lakes,
in which dwell monsters-serpents as
long as a fir tree, which, were they in
the open sea, would commit mighty
damage. One thing is certain-that
yonder, far away to the North, in the
heart of these hills, thero is a won?
derful valley, so narrow that only at
mid-day is the face of the sun to be
seen. That valley lay undiscovered
and unknown for thousands of years;
no porson dreamed of its existence;
but at last, a long time ago, two In?
dian hunters entered it by chance,
and thou what do you think they
found? They found a small tribe of
unknown people, speaking an un?
known tongue, who had lived there
since tho creation of the world, and
without knowing that other beings
The New York Tribune thinks this
is too bad. More than forty years
ago, Mr. John Cleves Symmes, a bona
fide Jerseyman, told us about this
strange vnlley, which is neither more
nor less than Symmes' Hole, leading
to tho interior of the globe, where
may be found nations and tongues
unknown, and treasure untold.
Doubtless this wonderful Aliaskan
valley is tho entrauce to Symmes'
wonderful inner world, and the un?
known tongue of those who had
lived there since the creation is that
of the subterranean inhabitants. It
ie supposed that these strange people
are the descendants of Cain, who
wandered away to the land of Nod,
and were thenceforth not heard from
until tho purchase of Walrussia by
our great laud-jobber.
In his message to Congress recom?
mending the constitutional amend?
ment, President Lincoln said: "The
plan is proposed ns permanent con?
stitutional law. It cannot become
such without the concurrence of,
first, two-thirds of Congress, and
afterwards three-fourths of the
States. Tho requisite three-fourths
of tho States will necessarily include
seven of the slave States."
Suez has a model .post office. On
the arrival of mails from England
and India, the rush for letters is suid
to be indescribable. Each one helps
himself to whatever letter or letters
he can lay hands upon. In tho
scramble, many lotters are torn to
"The sound of your hammer,"
says Franklin, "at 5 in the morning,
or at night, heard by a creditor,
makes him easy six months longer;
but if he sees you at a billiard table,
or hears your voice at a tavern, when
you should be at work, ho will send
for his money the next day."
A FENIAN RIDDLE.-The English
papers publish, with great satisfac?
tion, a Fenian riddle that has just
been concocted. Tho problem is:
"My first, when he makes my second,
calls himself my whole;" and the
When intoxicated, a Frenchman

On Sunday last, the telegraph wires

to presorve an alphabetical order
rather overdid the matter, thusly:

"Papa, please buy me a muff when
